To the Editor of the "Inquirer." [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 February 1842

To the Editor of the 'Inquirer.' SIR, — Allow me to make a few remarks on the letter that appeared in last weeks Gazette signed " A Wesleyan Methodist," and purporting to be a reply to me in the matter of the baptism of Warrup. The letter is highly creditable to the writer in many respects, and chiefly as regards the mild and unobttusive way in which he han- dles the question, which is a new feature in the case,and in remarkabe contrast with the ignor-   ance and petulance displayed by the party who made the first reply. Truly the follower is in this case better than the teacher — the lowly Wesleyan Methodist" far superior to the exalt-   ed "officiating Missionary."   It is not my object further to prolong this dis- enssion, more especially as I see no probability of bringing the oether side to the point I wish, save by entering into arguments which you, sir, have intimated to me would be innadmissable in your journal. I may say however that while I feel o...

By William   Nairne Clark. Since time began in this one of the many planetary bodies that revolve in the vast universe — the throne of God — a space totally incomprehensible even to human thought, — man has ever been a grasping being. Not satis- fied with tcrritories peacefully acquired on the face of the earth, wlhen he had no difficulties to struggle against, ex- cept those formed by nature — no opponents to dispute the supremacy of the soil, except the wild beasts of the forest, over whom the Creator had given him dominion — no question as to the right of property in the soil, which af- terwards descended from father to son in peace and quiet- ness,— man, as families rose into tribes, and tribes into nations, began to covet the goods...

THE PLAGIARISMS OF OUR CONTEMPORARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 23 February 1842

The Plagiarisms op our Contemporaries. We give due notice that we are about to be T«ry ill-natured. We are naturally of an am iable disposition, and are well inclined to shut our «yes to the peccabilities of our fellows, but there arc offences which neither men, nor gods, nor ed it ors are expected to pass over, and of these the filching by one writer of the literary productions of another, is not the least. Our readers wiii he surprised to learn that we have on more than one occasion detected our contemporaries in Van Diemen's Land and Sydney, in appropriating to themselves certain remarks that have been made in this journal, not as an extract with its source acknowledged, but as their own original matter. In former times plagiarism was an art, having its professors as well as its followers, who publicly taught life way in which persons destitute of lit erary abilities themselves might still become em inent for literature, their principle being to draw upon the funds of others when...

AN INQUIRY Respecting the Aborigines of South-Western Australia — Sketches of their habits and modes of life, and views of their moral notions, as contrasted with those of the   European population of the Colony. By William Nairne Clark. [Continued.] With regard to the food of the natives, it consists of dif- ferent species of roots belonging to the genus Hemodorum in Botany ; of the fruit of the ZamiaSpiralis (native Queen- in,) and of the pulpy substance of the Xanthorrea or black- boy (native Paal-all) and the grubs that feed on it, which are a racy morsel even for Europeans. The natives like- wise eat the flesh of all the tribe of animals in this part of the world, even esteeming that of the native dog, no mean article of food. They eat reptiles, such as snakes, guanas and large lizards by a preparation of roasting on the fire, (I am told they taste like chicken, although I never tried the experiment.) They likewise subsist on such birds as come within the reach of ...
